I thought I would do some comparing to see if buying into DVC costs relatively the same now as it did back in 1992. I started thinking about what the cost of my membership could get me in today's economy. That led me to compile this very unscientific data comparing the national average of a few things compared to the cost of 1 DVC point. For the 2008 data I was able to get national averages from either the end of 2007 or start of 2008.

In 1992 one DVC point cost $56.00. You could get on average:

20.14 Gallons of Milk

193.1 First Class Postage Stamps

49.56 Gallons of Gas and

For the cost of the mdeian home in America you could buy 2,573.21 DVC points.

Now, in 1999 one DVC point cost $65.00. You could get on average:

19.57 Gallons of Milk

196.97 First Class Postage Stamps

55.56 Gallons of Gas and

For the cost of the median home in America you could buy 3012.31 DVC points.

Finally, in 2008, one DVC point costs $104. You can get on average:

23.69 Gallons of Milk

247.62 First Class Postage Stamps

34.1 Gallons of Gas and

For the cost of the mdeian home in America you could buy 2076.92 DVC points.

Not really sure how useful this information may be to anyone, but I found it interesting, nontheless. The # of DVC points one could buy with the $$ needed to buy the median home has really changed since 1999!
